The Choice

Tracing his and his brother John’s very different paths in life, from their childhood through the maelstrom of Ballymun’s heroin epidemic, The Choice considers the relationships, tensions and chance occurrences that pushed the two brothers in very different directions – Philly to university, the boardroom and glory in Croke Park; John to drug addiction and tragedy. A moving memoir about family, fate and the decisions that shape our lives.
